Developed in partnership with our Federal, State and regional partners, The Action, Implementation, and Mitigation Program (AIM) seeks to increase local capacity and support wildfire risk reduction activities in high-risk communities. Coalitions and Collaboratives, Inc. (COCO) provides direct support to place-based wildfire mitigation organization through pass-through grant funding, on-site engagement, mentoring and training on proven best mitigation practices; provides ongoing mentoring and support to funded groups focused on accomplishing wildfire risk-reduction actions, in order to ensure programmatic sustainability at a local level; and provides technical expertise and subject matter expert resources to help high-risk communities achieve their wildfire adaptation goals.
Awards are intended to help accelerate fire adapted community concepts, increase resiliency and local capacity and protect firefighters and communities. Funding will be provided to a wide array of organizations.

- A program aimed at increasing the diversity of funding available to allow organizations the ability to increase the scale and pace of mitigation activities.
